Series 2, Episode 3 - A Losing Streak

Del's been dealt a few dodgy hands by Boycie in their card school and he's losing money rapidly. Believing that a losing streak can't last forever, he invites Boycie round for another poker game to win back his money, and is prepared to back himself with everything he owns... including Grandad's tellies!

Further details

Del is getting into financial trouble - even his double-headed coin can't help him win. He's gambling away his money with no sign of stopping, and he's already £150 down.

Nevertheless, when Boycie challenges him to a winner-takes-all poker game, Del is eager to host it in his flat in Mandela House.

As the night progresses, Del's luck goes from bad to worse as he ends up owing Boycie all his money, the TITCO van, Grandad's cash, jewellery and even a collection of loose change.

But all is not lost, as Del finally turns the tables on Boycie in revenge for fixing all the previous card games in his favour.
